Keyboard Shortcut for Shutdown

I talked a few blogs back about how to use a keyboard shortcut to put your computer to sleep. Well, similarly, today we're going to go over how to shutdown your computer.

If you're using a Windows computer, all you have to do is press the Windows key, right arrow once, and then Enter. Once you do this, your computer will automatically shutdown. That's all there is to it!

To restart your computer is almost as easy. Press the Windows key, right arrow twice, and the up arrow once and then press Enter. It's just as easy to switch users, log off, or lock the computer, as well.

To shutdown the computer on a Mac, just press Ctrl, Opt, Cmd, and Eject and it will shut down immediately. To restart, press Ctrl, Cmd, Eject and your computer will restart itself automatically.

So those are just a few tips to quickly restart or shut down your computer.

  1. These are pretty helpful shortcuts for keypads. I will no longer use the traditional way to shut down my computer.
